I don't really know what I'll get out of posting this as I know I can't go into details. Yesterday morning my headteacher was told a report had been made to the police and passed to the LADO that myself and another member of staff had assaulted a child whilst using the handling techniques that our school policy specified. This incident happened 10 days before it was reported. I spent the day teaching and wasn't informed until 4:30 pm and by the time the meeting was over and I'd got over the initial anger and shock I couldn't get hold of my unions. The other member of staff hasn't been informed as she went home at lunchtime and I'm not allowed to say anything to her. She will be told on Monday morning. I feel like this is it, my teaching career is over even if I am found to be innocent and followed the guidelines. I don't feel like I can trust anyone on SLT now as they haven't supported us with this child which is why it led to the circumstances anyway. I don't feel like I can return to the school. I'm not sure want to carry on teaching. I've only been teaching a few years but after a difficult year already I just want to pack it all in now and go and do a job where I don't feel emotionally battered constantly. If anyone can offer any words of wisdom I would REALLY appreciate it. Feel so flat now that I have a whole weekend where I cant do anything.
